Another year and I haven't met my goals yet. However, I am not discouraged! I view life as a journey and I know the Lord has a plan for my life and though my life does not always go as I have planned I love my life and I love the journey.
I have a plan to get back to the plan this year of working hard, sicking to journaling my food and activity and being more and more active. I know how to be healthier, I have the tools that Sparkpeople has to offer. I love the community aspect. I have learned over the course the past two years that I NEED to be part of a Team!
I have also learned that I need to carve time out for myself!
I am so thankful for Sparkpeople and all the support and help they have given me over the years...
Thank you for being on this journey of reaching my health goals with me!

Member Since: 1/16/2008

Fitness Minutes: 60,691

My Goals:
I want to be a healthy weight. My ultimate goal weight is 155 by June 2014.

MY REWARDS for 2013:
for every 25# lost a $25 gift card to Old Navy.
At 75# an extra $50
(to be clear I have lots of clothes from being down and now going up)
For mini rewards days at Disney, a manicure, pedicure.

I started my weightloss last May (2007) with giving up soda and starting watching what I eat and trying not to skip lunch so much. I am trying ot make better decisions each and every day -- It is a journey -- Last May I started this journey losing 30 pounds between May and Dec 2007 ... Then I joined Spark people and I have started over my counting for SparkPeople and Just add the 30# in my head since it is an easy number to add.

My goals include more than just losing weight, but like I have said life is a journey including a spiritual one!

My Program:
I try to eat sensibly and in moderation. So what does that mean?
Water: I try to Drink 9+ cups of water a day -- I have not had a soda since May 2007! I stopped drinking my calories.
Calories: I try to eat the lower end of my range
Fat: Try and to lower my fat intake and make better decisions.
Fruits and Veggies: 5 a day rule
Basically I try and eat the food pyramid but within the limits laid out in Sparkpeople.

Personal Information:
Hi there, my name is Christina and I am married. I have been married to my husband for seven years. June will be 13. We have no children, we both work a lot, I work at a church and commute 1.5 hours each way. Yeah I do love my job.

My husband is very supportive and even walks at my pace.

We have a good time together. In many ways he is my best-friend, but I have a few others of those and they know who they are.

One fun fact... I love Disney, especially Winnie the Pooh! Good thing I live in Orlando!

The Lord has truly blessed me.

Other Information:
